Day 30: Stay away from high roller friends

Columbus, GA(WTVM)--Sometimes the amount of money you spend when you're hanging out with the guys and gals is no laughing matter. Talk about peer pressure,it can crop up in places you least expect it like dinner.

It happens to the best of us. You get convinced to eat out, but deep down inside you know you really can't afford it.  The temptation is bad on your budget and your bills. Two things your friends may not know or even care about, after all it's you that has to pay for it all in the end!

If it's someone special though, there may be a way to balance your buddies and your budget. You can do things like eat at home before you go out and even include friend time in your budget.
